Well that’s a word we don’t see all the time uh? Unfortunately Charleston Bilingual Academy has seen several cases of gastroenteritis among students this past week. Please keep this information from SC DHEC in mind, and as always, refer to the CBA Parent-Student Handbook:

Students will not be admitted to school if he or she has one or more of these symptoms: diarrhea, rash, fever, persistent cough, sore throat, upset stomach, vomiting, constant green or yellow mucus, a cold with infection present, discharge from pink, red, or puffy eyes, or earache. In case of rash, please have your child’s doctor evaluate the rash to determine if it is contagious.

If illness occurs during the school day, we will isolate the child and contact the parent(s)/guardian(s) listed on the registration form. If neither parent/guardian can be reached, CBA staff will contact the  emergency contacts listed on the registration form. If the staff feels that the child should not stay at school, the parent(s)/guardian(s) agree that someone will come for him/her immediately. The school does not have “sick room” facilities other than to isolate students from their class.
